12: Our bodies have many parts, but the many parts make up only one body when they are all put together.  14: Yes, the body has many parts, not just one part.  15: If the foot says, ‘I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,’ that does not make it any less a part of the body.  16: And what would you think if you heard an ear say, “I am not part of the body because I am only an ear, and not an eye’? Would that make it any less a part of the body? 17: Suppose the whole body were an eye – then how would you hear? Or if your whole body were just one big ear, how could you smell anything?

18: But that isn’t the way God has made us. He has made many parts for our bodies and has put each part just where He wants it. 19: What a strange thing a body would be if it had only one part!  So He has made many parts, but still there is only one body.  21: The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.”  The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you. 

22: And some of the parts that seem weakest and least important are really the most necessary. 23: Yes, we are especially glad to have some parts that seem rather odd! And we carefully protect from the eyes of others those parts that should not be seen, 24:  while of course the parts that may be seen do not require this special care. So God has put the body together in such a way that extra honor and care are given to those parts that might otherwise seem less important. 25: This makes for happiness among the parts, so that the parts have the same care for each other that they do for themselves. 25: If one part suffers, all parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad.”   1 Corinthians 12:12-26

"But this precious treasure, this light and power of Christ] that now shines within us is held in a perishable container, that is, in our weak bodies. ...We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don't know why things happen as they do, but we don't give up and quit.  We are hunted down, but God never abandons us.  We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going. ...but this gives us constant opportunities to show forth the power of Jesus Christ within our dying bodies."  2 Corinthians 4:7-11

“Therefore we do not lose heart, [never give up-NIV] but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.  For our momentary, light afflictions are producing [achieving] for us an eternal  glory far beyond comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal [temporary], but the things which are not seen are eternal.”        2 Corinthians 4:16-18

"For we know that when this tent we live in now is taken down - when we die and leave these bodies - we will have wonderful new bodies in heaven, homes that will be ours forevermore, made for us by God HIMself, and not by human hands. That is why we look forward eagerly to the day when we shall have heavenly bodies which we shall put on like new clothes. These earthly bodies make us groan and sigh, but we wouldn't like to think of dying and having no bodies at all. We want to slip into our new bodies so that these dying bodies will, as it were, be swallowed up by everlasting life. This is what God has prepared for us and, as a guarantee, He has given us His Holy Spirit." 2nd Corinthians 5:1-5

"Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. ...So we make it our goal to please HIM, whether we are at home in the body or away from it."  2nd Corinthians 5:6-9

"As servants of God we command ourselves in every way to great endurance in troubles, hardships and distresses; the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;...through bad report and good report, ...sorrowful yet always rejoicing; ...having nothing and yet possessing everything." 2 Corinthians 6:3-9

But He [God] said to me [Paul], 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ sake, I delight in weaknesses, am quite happy about the thorn, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.  For when I am weak, then I am strong; the more I depend on HIM."  2 Corinthians 12:9-10
